Bear is exhausted so we had a right moan about the whole concept of homework. He has his first piano lesson after the summer break and I think his tutor is going to be unimpressed.
Bear is not the only one. I have a vile sore throat and I ache. I asked for the operation to be postponed. The rodent ulcer is a very mild, very non threatening form of cancer but it is getting bigger and I want it sorted! Hopefully it will be dealt with before Halloween.
I have two trays of winter pansies booked for Tuesday and not much fit in the garden so I've had to get a wiggle on. I've cut back some stuff and pulled up other stuff, but there's a lot more to do. To say it's only a tiny patch, I'm not very good at keeping up to it.
btw can I mention Sporcle. It is a site where they have quizzes. I have found the embarrassing gaps and holes in what I know, especially films or tv. However I am learning all sorts as a by product and can now spell Kyrgyzstan even if I can't find it on a map (somewhere in the middle of Asia, south of Russia and north of India - I looked it up). I've taken screen shots of the quizzes about the most popular girls and boys names of particular times as I usually get around twenty out of 400 and I need the inspiration for the writing. It's good to get the brain going!
